i want to buy shoulder pads of md-9000 (panasonic mini-dv format camera) from where i can buy that. i am from india


I suggest you use lightweight tripod instead of shoulder pads. Shooting stance using lcd monitor is very different from shooting stance using old cameras. connect the camera to the tripod and rest the tripod feet in you waist(Bind the tripod feet together), getting a clear view of lcd monitor. it is like carrying a flag pole when marching. using old shooting stance will only make you appear a crossed eye videographer!![:0)
